Arrival at Travel Media Showcase

The trip was a bit hectic. On the second leg of the flight, from Atlanta to Kansas City, I discovered that there were some other TMS people on board. We arrived in Kansas City late after a slightly bumpy plane trip. We could not land in Kansas City as there was a thunderstorm in progress so we diverted to St. Louis and refueled then returned. This time we landed.

Naturally, my luggage was one of the last off the plane. A TMS rep was waiting for us and got us safely on the shuttle to the Hyatt Regency Crown Center in the heart of KC.

Normally, we register that evening but it was too late to register.

Just barely had time to check in and run up to my room and do a quick change of clothes for the reception.

The reception was held at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. It was jointly hosted by the museum and the Missouri Wine Council. The really good wine helped calm me down after the day’s frustrating flight.

Dinner was beef tenderloin and a nice Crème Brule for dessert.

The museum is fantastic. It is free and has many entrances in and out of the surrounding park.

Got back to my room but had to run down to the lobby to use the Wi fi. You could pay $10 per day to have it in the room but for the amount of time I would have to spend on iot that would have been a waste. My room has a lovely view as it is on the 24th floor.  Well tomorrow will begin.

I haven’t had time to download any pictures but will try to do so tomorrow.
